. the triumvirate of john mccain, joe lieberman and lindsey graham. welcome back to all three of you. you said you just got re-elected, this is to president obama, how about doing something big that is not liberal? how about doing something big that is really is bipartisan? every big idea he has is a liberal idea that drowns us in debt. how about manning up here, mr. president and use your mandate to bring this country together to stop us from becoming greece. >> yes. >> man up, barack obama. strong words. >> he has a chance to be an historic president. what makes us greece? it's not because the tax code is at 35% versus 39.6. what's going to make this country greece, like every other western nation, retiring at 10,000 a day in terms of baby boomer, three workers for every retiree, in 20 years we'll have two. medicare and social security are about $30 trillion underfunded. if you did what tip o'neill and ronald reagan chose to do, reform entitlements, we become the most dominant place on the planet pretty quickly. so what i would plead with the president to do is use this mandate. redo revenue, wh
't seen any cooling down in the anger of a lot of republican senators, particularly john mccain and lindsey graham and also some others. you know, what we saw this week is susan rice trying to make herself more palatable to these republican senators by seeking these meetings with several of them and all of them came out of these meetings more troubled than when they went in, even people such as susan collins of maine, who is known as a moderate and didn't seem to have a particular ax to grind on the whole benghazi thing going into that meeting. even, you know, a week ago mccain making some more conciliatory noises and now back where he started very opposed to this nomination saying kerry would be okay, but absolutely not susan rice. so, the administration will have a fight on their hands. >> but you would think that sheer optics of this would be enough to dissuade some members of the gop. you have a bunch of old white guys spending a couple days bashing, bashing a fairly popular black woman on national television for days. you would think all things considered at this point, lyn
mccain. you said since john mccain and lindsey graham are like a human circular centipede -- they're like a senator-pede, part of the same organism. >> they keep feeding and defecating the same talking points into each other's mouths constantly. >> stephanie: lindsey graham of course repeated exactly what john mccain said. as you say they eat the same [ bleep ] in an endless loop. like a senator-pede. >> the siamese senators. and it's become so boring on sunday mornings. you know. now it is either mccain, graham or which other boring senator is going to be on there? >> stephanie: at any rate, i was saying -- what is your prediction on the susan rice thing? i've heard people saying he's not going to nominate her now. it is a shame. it really is. >> no, i think that at this point, if he were to nominate her, it would be a direct confrontation. it could be a way to call them out. and to say -- and to force them to say okay, what do you really have? i think -- i don't know. i think he's in a confrontat
with three of the great legendary senators john mccain, joe lieberman and lindsey graham. >> it means old. >> yes, it does. i'll stand by my comments. >> america has moved incredibly fast from the time all three of you have been in the senate even. you're now seeing same-sex marriage being legalized in many states. do you think that young people don't care nearly as much about it as their parents. >> part of it is generational. part is the media. you're casting movies and tv shows where people are same-sex couples are funny, charming and kind. the point is that you can be funny, charming and kind and be in love with someone of the same sex. what's the role of the law here? we're not talking about an academic discussion. when is it proper for the government to set boundary in terms of relationships? it's clearly proper to say you can't kill someone. i have no problem with people passing on their property to someone they love. i have no problem with people having the ability to engage in a free and open life. part of this is religious. in my state, we're not going to change the traditional
right now. two key senators, republican senators john mccain of arizona and lindsey graham of south carolina. senators, thanks to both of you for coming in. let's go to both of you, senator mccain first. i know you were angry at the tone of the president's comments today, but give us your sense. are you going to vote for this legislation, assuming there's a deal? >> if there's a deal, obviously. if it does not have at least a delay in implementation of sequestration, which the secretary of defense has said will be devastating to national security, then i probably cannot vote for that, unless that's included in the deal. >> if it's a two or three-month delay, sequestration going into effect, in other words, those billions of dollars in defense cuts that are supposed to go into effect right away, if it's delayed for two or three months, is that good enough to get your vote tonight? >> i think i would have to see the rest of the package obviously, wolf. i want to support anything that would avert what's going to happen if we don't act. but at the same time, i can't vote for something t
